My website is hosted by Squarespace...which I absolutely love...but. I have a question. How do I add retailing of prints for sale? Squarespace doesn't really support it "yet". How would you handle this? 2 sites? I am soooo confused. :(

You will either have to do a second site to handle the print selling for you or you will have to give a price list for sizes and have the customer contact you directly to order them (by phone or email).

I would recommend having the second site or moving to a site that has a built in storefront.

dinamichele, I might be late and you have already found a solution to your problem, but I will answer anyway. If you are selling prints individually, like wall art, Squarespace has a built in e-commerce option for it. But it will not let you batch proof with your client, unfortunately. I had the same issue and had to find a proofing site for that. I know there are a few, but the one I started using and quite happy with is Shootproof. Once the choices are made, you can send print order directly to the lab (4 different options). Once the customer received all but one print, it took only one phone call and they reprinted and sent it again at no additional cost.

But I feel your frustration, I'd prefer doing this from the same site. Good luck
